Feb 01, 2010 Review: Kindle 2

Review: Kindle 2 I absolutely love books. My shelves are overflowing with them and I have an irrational desire to buy more at a rate considerably faster than what I can finish them at. So with this obsession of mine, it would probably seem like blasphemy to buy, let alone enjoy, an e-book reading device, right? There are plenty of die-hard bookworms who would in an instant agree, but I have to question if their knee-jerk reaction is merely a result of stubbornness.

An observation of quality in the Great Books of the Western World I have been contemplating buying a set of the Great Books of the Western World for some time and now that I am a little more serious about dropping some cash on a set, I thought it would be a good idea to get a feel for the quality first.

List of books for atheists, agnostics and free-thinkers Here is a collection of nonfiction books I find interesting as an atheist and I suspect will also be appreciated by other non-believers.

Book Review: Night Fall by Nelson Demille Although it is fiction, Night Fall is based around hard evidence and questionable conclusions regarding the tragedy of TWA flight 800, an airliner that exploded off the coast of New York in 1996 killing over 200 passengers.

Sep 23, 2008 Book Review: Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs

Book Review: Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs I recently started watching the TV show Bones and quickly became a fan. I noticed in the beginning of each episode during the intro credits that it was based off novels by Kathy Reichs, and having liked the show, I decided to check out the novels. Deja Dead is the first novel in the series and so I figured it would be the best place to start.

Sep 01, 2008 Book Review: Angels and Demons by Dan Brown

Book Review: Angels and Demons by Dan Brown Angels and Demons, written by Dan Brown, is a novel based heavily around the different philosophical viewpoints and intent between science and religion. The storyline itself is entertaining and easy to follow, but its something much deeper that made me like this book. Most Christian writers will show a very evident bias in their fictional writings like C.S. Lewis. Despite the criticism by his fellow believers, Dan Brown, who is a Christian in real life, does not hold back when it comes to writing objectively about religion within his novels.
